Slack Blog discovers Ask v Guess

Slack blog on Ask v Guess Culture in the Office. Link to the original thread in the first paragraph, along with a clarifying interview with Metafilter's own tangerine. The author of the post appears to be someone who has some familiarity with Metafilter community norms.

Because I'm tired of having this come up in EVERY SINGLE politics thread: If you were a professional wrestler, what would be your entrance music be? More granularly: what would it be if you were A) a Face, and B) a Heel? Which would you prefer to be? Which do you think you'd be more likely to be? Let's hash this out right now.

Choice making outside yes or no

I'm trying to find the idea for choice resolution where a couple wanted to pick something, whether it was a TV show out dinner, and instead of just a binary yes-no, it was more like testing how much you cared about X, to allow for more nuanced choice making. But I have had no luck googling or searching on it. Can anyone help?

The more you know, the more you can create.

There's no end to imagination in the kitchen. Given that the cookbook thread petered out over a week ago and the caramel sugar thread is currently making me wish I was in my kitchen, describe the best thing you have ever made. In pornographic detail. If you wish to add the recipe here, those that are working on "Can I Eat This?" can start up the book.

Content blocking websites are garbage and should be flagged.

A recent FPP is completely unviewable. I tried - it blocks me from viewing, demanding an email address and agreeing to a complicated TOS just to RTFA. Websites like wapo, wired, telegraph, etc are actually impossible to view for many users, and I am surprised that links to them are allowed in FPPs. [more inside]
